A lot of people over the age of thirty remember Twin Peaks and would like that show, but also there are some younger Lynch fanboys out there that would love a reboot. Well, good news for anyone who is either a Twin Peaks fan or an altogether Lynch fans: Twin Peaks is coming back in 2016. The TV series will have 9 episodes and will air on Showtime.
2016 will mark 25 years since the show originally aired and the new Twin Peaks is not supposed to be a remake but a continuation of the original events. And together with the show, Kyle MacLachlan will be returning to his old role Dale Cooper, Special Agent. MacLachlan is very excited for the show’s return and to be part of the crew again as he so stated.
As the new show will be a continuation of the old one it will be set in present time and 25 years would have passed in the Twin Peaks universe as well. The new show will be written and directed by David Lynch and Mark Frost, the people who are responsible for the first series so the timeline should be smooth. It has been announced that the filming will take place in 2015 and it will air sometime in 2016.
Before airing the new series, Showtime has announced that it will also air the old one to make the story more continuous for viewers. It will also serve as a refresher for people who know that Twin Peaks is about and as an introduction to the universe for younger viewers.
